An Austin man who pleaded guilty to having sexual electronic communication with a then 15-year old girl starting in September of 2020 has been sentenced to supervised probation in Mower County District Court.
27-year-old Brandon James Nisley was convicted and sentenced Friday to 10 years of supervised probation for a felony charge of attempted 4th degree criminal sexual conduct, victim less than 16 years of age. A prison term of a year and a day was stayed for 10 years if Nisley complies with the 26 different conditions of his probation. Nisley was also convicted and sentenced Friday to 10 years of supervised probation for a felony charge of distributing via electronic communication material that relates or describes sexual conduct to a child. A 20-month prison sentence was stayed for 10 years if Nisley complies with the terms of his probation, and Judge Jeffery Kritzer ruled that the two sentences will be served concurrently.
Nisley first pleaded guilty to the two felony charges on May 10th.
